Neighbouring Devastation--A Case Study of Indonesia
Indonesia possesses 10% of the world's tropical rainforests and is one of the "biologically most significant areas of the world" as described by Robert Goodland of the World Bank. This huge area of forests can be classified into three major ecosystem types: tropical moist forest, monsoon forest, and tropical dry forest. It is a place where the magic of the forests lies and where infinite species lives. However, it is quite saddening to know that the depletion of the magical greens is growing tremendously, and that species are perishing in the raging flames, and being chased out of their homes by the falling of trees. The main causes are the growth of the timber industry, the introduction of the transmigration programme, and shifting cultivation. The magic of the mysterious forests is disappearing so rapid that it will never have the chance to be unraveled. Will mankind do something to preserve the remaining magic? Or will the magical force vanished from the face of the Earth?
Now let take a closer look into the case study of Indonesia:
